  • 1 pound gnocchi
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 12 ounces precooked smoked turkey sausage, sliced into rounds
  • 1 large bunch of kale, stems removed and chopped (you want about 4 to 6 cups)
  • ¾ cup chicken stock
  • ¾ cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • kosher salt and pepper


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Once it boils, cook the gnocchi according to the package directions.
  • While the water is boiling, Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil with the shallots and garlic. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add in the sliced sausage and cook until the sausage is browned on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Add in the chopped kale and stir. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes, until it wilts a bit. Stir in the chicken stock and let it warm for a few minutes, continuing to wilt the kale.. Add the gnocchi to the pan. Stir in the parmesan cheese. Cook for a few more minutes to bring everything together. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and serve!
  • Leftovers of this are great - you may want to add a bit of stock if it dries out when reheating.
